Overview

The School of Arts and Humanities is for students who want to pursue their true passion – or simply find it.

We‘re one of the largest and most comprehensive schools of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere, with a diverse range of programs covering media and communications, contemporary arts, design, psychology and social sciences, criminology and justice, and the humanities.

We’re also home to one of the world’s best film and television schools, the Western Australian Screen Academy.

Our courses are delivered at our Mount Lawley and Joondalup campuses, with Arts and Social Work also available at our South West Campus in Bunbury.

Our approach to teaching is one that maximises a student’s employability through acquiring hands-on skills and experiencing professional placements, complemented by a solid theoretical background.

Our course structures also allow for acquisition of expertise in multiple areas, recognising the need for multi-skilling in today’s arts and communications industries.

Courses

The school offers a diverse and exciting mix of courses that are developed in consultation with industry groups and combine the latest theory with hands-on, practical experiences.

Research and creative activity

We are dedicated to providing quality research that encourages interaction with the wider community and contributes to benefiting our society. Encompassing staff and students from around the globe, we celebrate the diversity of perspectives and creativity that this brings.

Our research centres and groups include;

  • Centre for Research in Entertainment, Arts, Technology, Education and Communications
  • Lifespan Resilience Research Group
  • Psychopathology Research Group
  • Sellenger Centre for Research in Law, Justice and Social Change
